Now ubiquitous, mobile communication technologies such as smart phones and tablet computers have revolutionized the way that individuals communicate with each other. However, the mobile technology revolution is only now beginning to change communication between clinicians and individuals with mental illness.
The 2016 Richman Innovation Lecture will address several important questions about how these technologies can be used to improve clinical care for individuals with Mental Illness.
The lecture will include an introduction to uses of technology by UM SSW Associate Professor Jay Unick and some discussion of projects that are going on at the School. Diane Seybolt, Director of Research, The Systems Evaluation Center (SEC), at the University School of Medcine, will then discuss the role that the state and state initiatives have in using technology to improve care. Julie Kreyenbuhl, an associate professor of psychiatry from the School of Medicine, discusses how researchers are developing new approaches to improve aspects of care such as medication adherence amount for those with SMI. Finally, Dudley Greer, director, Behavioral Health Outreach at Health Care Access Maryland talks about the clinical implications of technology and how behavioral health agencies are using technology right now to improve care.
